StarCore Nuclear

Advanced Groundbreaking Nuclear Technology

Bringing safe energy and clean water to remote communities.

The StarCore Way

What We Do

StarCore Nuclear Inc. is a Canadian nuclear energy company developing Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) using High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor (HTGR) technology.

StarCore plants are unique – they are built for off-grid, remote operations in areas of the world where there is unreliable power, water or transmission lines.

“StarCore represents a technology that can change the way we provide power to some of the world’s most remote locations.”

Why We Do It

It’s our mission that nuclear energy must provide more than just electricity to its communities. It must be safe, distributable, and replicable. StarCore’s technology is the future to a sustainable and carbon-free future.

Coming Soon to Pinawa

StarCore Nuclear is partnering with the Local Government District of Pinawa to demonstrate their first SMR at the Whiteshell Laboratories complex.

StarCore Has a Clear Vision for the
Future of Nuclear

A Better Process

The StarCore Small Modular Reactor (SMR) uses a unique type of nuclear fuel called TRISO fuel. Each fuel particle is wrapped in three layers of protective graphite and ceramic materials. This shell prevents the fuel from melting, even under the most extreme heat conditions.

Technology That's Safe

The high temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) design is classified as Inherently Safe by the International Atomic Energy Agency because any type of coolant disruption will automatically cause the reactor to shut down, preventing damage to the reactor, and making any disaster avoidable.

Adding Community Value

The adoption of a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) in a remote community or mine site will bring safe, affordable, and carbon-free electricity to that location. Other benefits to the community include high-speed internet, fresh water and year-round, locally-grown produce.
